Teens and work
hi - my 14 year old daughter just signed up to sell Avon! Already she is learning how to figure out cost and how to sell and talk to people. IN this project she will have to do many things - deal with people, place orders, make change, suggestive selling, how much to invest in bags and books etc. If she can make enough $$ to buy her own beauty products etc for school that would be great. :jump2:
